Bollettino Socialista Rivoluzionario               March-May 1879  London

Need to check when "Anarchism" by Parsons (1889?) arrived. Also not sure just how much of Chatterton is anarchist.Perhaps by 1887? I have added the Carpenter because it is considered one of his most anarchist texts...Also date of Expropriation by Kropotkin.Presumably Proudhon's 'What is Property?" transl. by Benjamin Tucker in 1876 was circulating through Seymour.Need to check the date of the  W. Reeves edition.
